Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” By the time a Jewish boy reaches the age of 12 he is trained in five areas of his life. The books of the Pentateuch are used to teach him life lessons. He is taught the book of Genesis to understand his origin. He is taught the book of Exodus to understand there is nothing in life he will go through that God won’t bring Him out. In Leviticus he learns that he is chosen and is a Priest. In Numbers he discovers and understands the importance of accountability and responsibility. Finally, Deuteronomy allows him the benefit of rehearsing the law again. The time is taken to groom their children for destiny. God has challenged our ministry to follow this pattern.
Radical Seed is the first tier of the Youth Ministry of Path Church of Restoration & Deliverance ranging from ages 4-13. I vehemently believe that if we train them at this age in the areas of health and wealth they will avoid many of the pitfalls we have made as adults in our lives.
